Abstract : This paper is designed to assess the condition of our industrial base and its ability to respond to the needs of the nation with military equipment in a crisis. This objective will be pursued with a review of our nation's historical approach to the subject; discussion of problem areas; an analysis of current initiatives to correct these problems; and recommended future courses of action. My interest in the subject is the result of working as a staff officer in industrial preparedness at Headquarters, United States Development and Readiness Command (DARCOM), in the mid-1970s. In addition, an assessment will be made on industrial base plans from that period to determine the degree to which those plans continued on to effect positive trends in the condition of the base.
